  • 3 ¼ cups strong bread flour
  • 3 tbsp powdered milk
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 sachet yeast
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup water
  • 30 g salted butter


  • Sieve the bread flour and powdered milk over a bowl.
  • Add the sugar, nutmeg, sea salt, and dry yeast.
  • Pour in the water and egg.
  • Use a mixer to knead the batter on low speed for five minutes.
  • Toss in the butter and knead on low speed for 15 minutes more.
  • Shape the dough into a round in a lightly oiled or buttered bowl.
  • Cover it with a cloth and leave to rise for 45 minutes.
  • Then, grease the air fryer pan with butter.
  • Lightly grease a flat surface with butter.
  • Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough.
  • Cut the dough into eight pieces with a dough cutter.
  • Pinch and shape each dough into balls.
  • Place the balls in the air fryer pan.
  • Cover with a cloth and leave to rise for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 205°C for five minutes.
  • Place the air fryer pan inside and cover with parchment paper.
  • Air fry the bread for 14 minutes.
  • Remove the parchment paper.
  • Air fry for one more minute.
  • Take the bread out of the pan and serve for freshly air-fried bread!



  • Measure the ingredients correctly for proportion.
  • Preheat the air fryer and grease the basket. Let the dough proof and test the yeast before use.
  • Check the dough for doneness before baking.
  • You can also knead the dough by hand for at least 25 minutes.
  • The best tip to remember is not to over-knead the dough to keep the gluten at an appropriate level and to prevent the bread from becoming tough.
  • If the dough has not risen, this may be due to inactive yeast or the temperature in your kitchen. To troubleshoot, check if the dough is active by combining it with water. If it reacts and bubbles immediately, you can use it for the batter.
  • If the bread is too moist and wet, it needs to be baked more, or the air fryer isn’t hot enough.
  • Large holes in the bread can be attributed to air pockets in the dough. To avoid this, punch the dough as you flatten it before shaping. Flattening it can remove the air pockets before baking.
